Train with me?
A new year, new plans, & a new generation.
Maple Rose Jacobs was born January 20 @ 4:20am after a mammoth overnight effort by Jaim.
Any Ironman I’ve ever done is nothing compared to the physical and mental effort Jaim gave over those 12hrs. I will always be the ‘weaker’ athlete in our household now.
2023 is already very different in so many ways, and there’s more happening too.
2022 was a big year for me, I learnt so much & got in my best shape for a decade.
My main takeaway is that being fit makes a massive difference to my health.
And I learnt more about how to get fit (and healthy).
Towards the end of ‘22 I let my client list shrink naturally (athletes completed races & I was not promoting my consulting services or myself much at all – yes, I’ll bring back the podcast in ‘23) , and I focused on Ironman Western Australia, and getting the house ready for Maple.
I am looking for new clients who want the full fitness and health coaching package I can offer.
Here’s a link to more information about my coaching business and how we will work together.
Training into elite Ironman shape was a great learning experience I’m looking forward to sharing with new clients (and eventually on the podcast).
UNFORTUNATELY I GOT TOO FIT!
2-3 weeks before Ironman Western Australia I sustained a stress fracture in my sacroiliac joint area of my hip (think ‘hip bone beside tail-bone’, roughly). A combination of factors for sure, little things that made my bones a little weaker, and the pain began at the end of my longest fastest run, at the end of one of my longest fastest weeks, so that was a major factor – the structure of my training that week.
I was as fit as I’ve ever been, I could run as well as I ever had, so I got carried away with my ego haha.
I’m just back running this week. Swimming and riding is going ok. I will aim for Port Macquarie Ironman on may 7.
12 weeks and 2 days away.
Time to get serious, time to wake up earlier, eat cleaner, be more efficient, less screen time, more client time, make some money and be a better husband & DAD! Letssss Gooooo
I’d love to coach anyone for anything, but if you have an Ironman coming up in the next 6 months I would really enjoy going on the journey together.
I’ll be in touch again soon, feel free to reply with any questions.
And if you want a one off session also do hourly consultations for your specific questions on health, nutrition, or fitness.
